This property is on the high side of Frankton Rd and only about 1 km from the town centre. Our apartment was at the end of the row and had dual aspect windows. Whilst the road is between you and the famed lakefront, the view of the mountains is not impeded and is magnificent. The apartment with separate living and... More

These apartments have excellent facilities and an extraordinary view of the lake and were very clean but little things need attention. The front door of the apartment is completely made of transparent glass affording occupants no privacy at all. This also raises doubts about security. To add insult to injury the handle to the front door came off in our... More

I stayed in the studio with a friend. The studio space was a little tight but it had all the needed amenities. It's on the main road so it has a nice view of the lake but you also see cars whizzing by. They have covered designated parking space for our rental car so we didn't have worry about finding...

We were very impressed with the two bedroom apartment - which turned out to be two fully contained flatlets each with their own bathroom and kitchenette. The apartments were very clean and a short, less than 10 minute walk into central Queenstown. There were four Wifi logins - for four simultaneous users and they provided use of a computer and...

We booked this hotel for our anniversary on a trip from auckland. The pictures are definitely deceiving, the studio rooms are TINY. No real room to even put a decent sized suitcase. During our stay a water pipe burst and as a result the whole block did not have access to hot water. In resolution to this problem we were... More

The place was fantastic. Very nice accommodations and polite staff. I am very active so the walk didn't bother me but it might for some people. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to town center. Further if you are going to the gondola. There is a pretty steep hill on the way there. I gave it 4 out of... More

We travelled as a family of three and booked a luxury 2 room premier apartment for a week over Christmas. We had apartment 212 which is actually 212A and 212B. There are some lovely touches such as the long desk in the hallway complete with a desktop with internet access & a colour printer. There are also passwords provided for... More

I stayed in a studio. This room was nicely appointed and we liked the location. A benefit of the studio is that there was minimal noise from the main road just in front of the hotel. One can easily walk into town. It was nice having the kitchenette.

We had a one bedroom apartment for 3 nights - the apartment is kitted out with everything you could ever need.....computer, wifi, laundry area, kitchen utensils for every manner of things, enough glasses to have cocktail parties, dishwasher, surround sound, air con etc etc . Although on the main road into town noise is minimal and the view is amazing.... More

We were in one of the studios. As the web site accurately depicts there are no views in studios, so no surpirse. The 1BR apartments get views, though they are on the main road to Queenstown, so the road noise might spoil it a bit for me. The good: everything seems pretty recent and in good condition (~2013 I'd say).... More
